L-500 Cargo Loading Device Evaluated
Marietta, Ga.—Lockheed-Georgia Co. has begun tests here on a full-scale cargo loading simulator for its L-500 civil version of the USAF C-5A, which is designed to move a 300,000-lb. payload on or off the cargo transport in 30 min. The simulator is the largest piece of ground hardware to date in what F. A. Cleveland, Lockheed vice president for advanced development, calls a total systems approach to air cargo.
